07:43 AM ET 12.16 | After so much offseason change in Carolina, from the forward ranks right back to the goaltending, the time may have come to help free up a logjam, of sorts, between the pipes for a team that can't seem to pull away from the .500 mark. The talk Saturday was that Carolina GM Jim Rutherford has been calling around to see what kind of market there is for goalie Justin Peters. The Hurricanes also have netminders Cam Ward and Anton Khudobin. The belief is the Edmonton Oilers, who still need to address their goaltending, have more than a passing interest in Peters. The 27-year-old has a solid .925 save-percentage with a 2.23 GAA on an inconsistent Carolina team. He'd be a nice fit.

Got rid of La Redlight! Stuck with Five Hole Dubnyk! Added Space Cadet Bryzgalov! Maybe call and find out what Grant Fuhr and Andy Moog are doing??

Seriously, you could have a 4X6 piece of plywood and it wouldn't help if they don't fix the defensive play from the other 18 guys on the roster.

I'm just guessing but I doubt Justin Peters is very popular with the ladies. :)

He c'mon Zatkoff is doing good backing up Fluery!

If it were up to you the Pens would pick up King Henrik.

Bryz has been real good in goal for them. Trade Dubnyk

Agreed. They have bigger concerns than goal-tending right now. Their entire D-line sucks and their forward smurf squad isn't doing much better. They keep getting pushed around and beat up by everybody.

Would be nice to see the Oilers a little more engaged on the ice for a change. They keep getting smacked around without any push back.

Their puck possession and protection is a huge problem. The number of times they turn over the puck is amazing.

They think it's a live grenade with the pin pulled.

Pretty much , that's a great way to define it.
